About the Campaign
About Halifax Humane Society

The Reimagining the Future for our Community's Animals campaign is the opportunity to partner with you, our community, and make this exciting and innovative expansion possible. Please help us continue to lead the way toward a brighter future for the animals in the community.

The Halifax Humane Society exists to protect animals from cruel, neglectful and exploitative treatment. It is the belief of the Society that all living creatures possess an intrinsic value, which is manifested in its creation. Further, the Society believes that mankind must become a responsible steward of animals which he has domesticated and brought under his control.

The Society shall maintain programs and services, which embrace that principle:
  • Maintain an animal shelter that provides for the needs of lost, forsaken and abandoned animals.
  • Educate and continually acquaint the citizens, particularly children, with the ethics of kindness and compassion, thereby engendering respect for all living beings.
  • Investigate complaints of animal abuse and correct those situations by way of education, or if need be prosecution.
  • Prevent the overpopulation of domestic animals by providing affordable spay and neuter opportunities to the public, while making certain that animals adopted from the Shelter never contribute to the problem.
